    Even though I know the iPhone X was coming out in the near future, I decided to go with the iPhone 8 instead. It wasn't a decision on whether or not I could afford it, but how much of the features that the X has that I would actually use that would justify paying extra for. Not to mention, I do prefer the home button that I have been used to since the first iPhone ever came out. And I like the fingerprint sensor to unlock my phone. I would recommend it to anyone with a 6s or older model. You really aren't getting much more than what you have with the 7. The iPhone 8 doesn't look much different since it's last major redesign from the iPhone 6, but it definitely has the improvements in technology on the inside to make it a worthy investment. My best advice when it comes to choosing any phone is to go with what you prefer in a phone. That made my decision a lot easier and the iPhone 8 is perfect for me.

    After clinging onto my 6S for years, i decided i needed a phone with stronger glass but didn’t want anything crazy expensive or fancy. This is a great 6S-but-better device. The transition to being headphone jackless hurts a little bit less as I am still familiar with the phone itself (although i do miss getting to use my headphones while charging my phone, but i can get an adapter or pods). The phone feels more luxurious, from the slimmer design and quicker, nicer screen, even with its more frequent vibrate home button click thing (sorry i don’t know the term). Going from 16GB of storage to 256 is a dream, but that is just a personal bonus.

    I Love My iPhone 8

    I upgraded from an iPhone 5S and boy was it an upgrade. I had considered the iPhone X because of the bigger screen, but I couldn't justify the extra price. I'm very happy with the iPhone 8. The screen is much bigger than the 5S and as a result, I don't use my iPad as much anymore. Force Touch (or whatever it's called) is really nice to have. I use it all the time with google maps to check traffic before I leave for work or for home. Other than that, it's an iPhone. So it works as expected. I love the 256GB size so I don't have to worry about running out of space anytime soon.

    I've had an iPhone for many many years now. I highly suggest this phone for anyone whom doesn't want the newest iPhone. I had and iPhone 7 but did not want a gigantic new iPhone nor did I want to lose my home button. This phone should last new a few years until I'm forced to upgrade. The 256GB should last me a long long time. I still have over 200GB free even after pulling down my apps, pics and music. The red glass back is amazing, I love it. You cannot get that color from Apple anymore in the iPhone 8, buy this while you can. I will say the camera is better than the 7 but I have not really noticed a speed improvement but I was not purchasing this for that reason.

    Waited for a promo to upgrade my iPhone. Best Buy had a great deal through my carrier so it was a no-brainer. The phone is exactly what I wanted (sorry not impressed with the iPhone X enough to pay the difference). Process at Best Buy was easy and painless to set up the phone and transfer everything from old to new. Best Buy employees are friendly, well trained, knowledgeable and not on commission. Going to Best Buy is much less hassle and better experience than going elsewhere (including Apple Store.). Great product. Even better with Best Buy deal and service.

    I was having problems with space on my old iPhone 5S so I decided to look at the new iPhones. The iPhone X and 8 Plus were both more expensive and basically only offered a better camera. The iPhone 8 had a reasonable price and was on sale, which made it even better. The camera was improved over the camera on my iPhone 5S so I was very pleased with its performance. I got plenty of memory on my iPhone 8 so I won't run into issues with iCloud backups and won't have to delete apps in order to have enough memory, as were both happening on my iPhone 5S. I'm very pleased with my iPhone 8.

    Iphone 8 in Special Edition Red Color

    My younger male teenager picked out a black iPhone 8 which they ran out at our local BestBuy. They had 1 RED special edition and my teenager reluctantly said yes. However, when brought home, he was pleased. The color is a vivid bright red and when you put a case on it, only the outline RED color shows around the phone-- so it's easier to find in a dark student's backpack. The next day, Bestbuy called and said they got in a new black iPhone 8 -- another black one. He said NO. He was happy with the Red one even though that was NOT his first choice color.

    I went for the iPhone 8 because it has the home button allowing use of a finger/thumb to open the phone,,,, i have used facial ID on other devices and do not like it so I decided to go with the last iPhone that done NOT have facial ID. Overall it works great, fast, good battery life, i am very very happy with the camera. The help at Best Buy was great, my biggest worry is getting all data from my old to the new phone, and the associate made that happen with no problem at all.

    Iphone 8 with 25g GB memory

    IT was the last one that BestBuy had in stock in this color. My kid was elated-- since this is an upgrade to the iPhone 7 which is slowly not being supported anymore. The iPhone 8 replaced an iPhone 6 and my kid could not be happier to have the upgraded Camera and several few more bells and whistles. The iPhone X was a little too different to jump into therefore, the iPhone 8 was a a happy medium. For instance, it STIlL supports i.d. recognition without resorting to Face recognition only like the iPhone X.

    Wish the phone was more different from an exterior POV than the 6S I upgraded from, but overall it's a great phone. Camera is out of this world good for a smartphone. It's a little different getting used to the lack of a physical home button, but the interface is still good. Battery life is at least double what I was getting on my old 6S and that was after having installed a new battery several months ago. Overall, I'm happy with this phone!

    I have used four different phones before getting the iPhone 8 there is none I can compare with iPhone 8 . It’s camera is great, its easy to access. Everything about the iPhone 8 works fine, it’s durable easy to carry on. It’s fell in water once for almost a month now I picked up it work fine and it’s still working fine like it never dropped in water. iPhone 8 is awesome.

    Upgraded from an old iphone5 and it is much faster at loading apps. The speakers are very much louder than the weak ones on old iphones, and I find myself turning down the volume more often than not. The phone is just a little too large to fully operate with one hand like i could with previous iphones, but the screen is also much larger and brighter than before so I guess that makes up for it.

    It’s an iPhone

    It’s an iPhone...which pretty much means it’s very similar to previous models. With one exception it does not have a head phone jack. As someone who does not always use wireless earbuds this is a bit inconvenient. However you can buy an adapter for about $10. It’s just annoying that I can not use my earbuds and charge my phone at the same time.

    I had the 6 before I bought the new iPhone 8. It's similar, but will more features. I specifically bought the model with 256G as I had issues with my other phone running out of memory. I've only had this about a month, but am very pleased thus far. The camera takes great pix, and I've been able to download all types of new apps. I'd definitely buy it again.

    I've been an iPhone user since the very first weekend the first iPhone was released. I've upgraded from the original iPhone to the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 6s and now to the iPhone 8. This phone is absolutely the best so far. Photo quality is superb, the high resolution screen is great, and the reliability of the iPhone is unbeatable.

    I was very reluctant to get rid of my iPhone 5s that I had for 4+ years. I don't do well with change. My old phone died, so I got the new iPhone 8. I'm sorry I waited so long. I love the new phone and the battery lasts forever now, even though I use it 24/7. I also like the wireless charging and the ability to summon Siri even when not plugged into power. Great phone.

    My daughter's old iPhone 6 only had 16gb of storage; way too small for a phone for today's standards. The iOS updates take up more and more of the storage. We finally decided to jump on the upgrade deals this holiday season. She decided she wanted the iPhone 8 instead of the X due to the cost and the familiarity of the phone. So far she loves the speed, screen and storage.

    A needed upgrade

    I recently upgraded to the new iPhone because Apple got caught throttling the speeds of older units to sell new units. I didn't really want to upgrade (I was quite happy with my 6S), but I do like this newer phone. I especially appreciate the upgraded Home button, and it really is faster. Call quality and build quality continue to be excellent.

    I absolutely love everything about my iPhone 8, from it's beautiful red color, to the great GB size & it's sleek & thin appearance. I often tell friends they should invest in one & that they would really appreciate the recommendation once they see what a great phone it is for themselves.
